Ellis Dyson & The Shambles celebrate Hopscotch bid, solo album anniversary
By Kyley Underhill
Staff Writer

UNC graduate Ellis Dyson isn’t a
magician.
But on Saturday night, he transformed the Back Room of Cat’s
Cradle into a spectacle of music and
theater in the form of an original,
vaudevillian comedic variety show.

“What I am selling to you this
evening is a fantasy become reality,
dreams realized, a vehicle to another
dimension. Ladies and gentlemen,
what I am selling to you this evening
is quite simply another chance at
this thing we call life,” Dyson said as
his character, Mr. Medicimo.
“And all I need from you, ladies
and gentlemen, are your eyes, your

ears and your souls. Welcome to Mr.
Medicimo’s Medicine Show.”
“Mr. Medicimo’s Medicine Show,”
which was written by Dyson and
performed by the band Ellis Dyson
& the Shambles, included backup
dancers, special guests and zany
characters.
Ellis Dyson & the Shambles is
a six-piece band that was formed

when all of the members were UNC
students. The band, which includes
two current UNC students, is known
for its self-described “swingin’ Dixie
Jazz” music and audience-involved
shows.
Their show on Saturday night
wasn’t their only planned performance for the day.
They were scheduled to take the

stage at 3 p.m. on Saturday at the
Hopscotch Day Party series — but
they had to cancel the appearance
due to a broken banjo.
It was run over by a car, the band
said on its Facebook page.
Fortunately, they managed to get
a new one in time for the variety

One of the Triangle’s biggest
music festivals took hold of area
music lovers this weekend — and
at least two of the big names
at the festival got their start at
UNC.
With an eclectic lineup covering rock, hip-hop, metal, folk,
electronic, experimental and
more and talent from both
local and national spheres, the
Hopscotch music festival has
become one of the foremost
music festivals in the Southeast.
And with a huge music festival based in the Triangle comes
local talent becoming national.

Parody boy band
fights HB2 in song
Staff Writer

DTH/SARAH DWYER
A large crowd gathered in Raleigh City Plaza while waiting for Vince Staples and Sylvan Esso to perform.

Music is all we got.
CHANCE THE RAPPER

Not many think of protest music when considering the boy bands of the 90s. But for the
Durham-based ad agency McKinney, the absurdity of the idea is completely in line with their
anti-House Bill 2 efforts.
“I think the genesis of the idea just came from
a simple pun. With the beginning of HB2, we just
had the idea that there are boy bands, so what if
there were boycott bands? And that just opened this
door to this whole world that we created,” said Will
Chambliss, a group creative director for McKinney.
The result was “Boycott Band: The Return of
One More Wish,” a mockumentary that followed the
fictional and regionally unsuccessful boy band One
More Wish as they reunited to take advantage of an
interesting side effect of HB2 — they would rebrand
themselves and play all of the shows that were can-

Why do people like LaCroix?
By Lauren Ferrington
Staff Writer

LaCroix has two ingredients: carbonated water and
natural flavor. LaCroix boasts
no sugar, no sodium and no
calories — in other words,
LaCroix has no American
spirit.
“It just sucks,” said UNC
junior Brian Stroud. “It
makes me want to throw up.”
Yet some insist that
LaCroix can make America
great again. I’ve met and
compiled the different types
of LaCroix drinkers:

Social Climbers
Some drink LaCroix to
separate themselves from the
pits of society: wretched, lowdown soda drinkers. Ick.
These social climbers insist
that LaCroix is infused with
vitamin S — Sophistication.
The carbonation immediately works its way into the
bloodstream, and as the bubbles pop, the body is infused
with snobbery and a sense of
entitlement. Space and time
slip away and are replaced
with a gilded world, where

student loans are cashed in
for unlimited pizza and Rolex
watches. In other words,
LaCroix transforms Beyoncés
in teen-angst clothing into,
well, not Beyoncé, but fullfunctioning adults.
Is the inevitable something
to aspire to?
“I feel bougie drinking it,”
said senior Jessica Mauney.

Moms
Moms love LaCroix. They
love to lie out by the pool,
read the latest edition to
Oprah’s Book Club and sip
LaCroix. They love to go to
their child’s soccer game, yell
at humans 30 years younger
than them and sip LaCroix.
They love to go to work, eat
a lunch made and packed by
themselves, and sip LaCroix.
The 20 different flavors give
moms nostalgia for the potpourri on the back of their
own mother’s toilets while
simultaneously granting hope
for the future of their children.
A sip of LaCroix is a sip
of peace. Yet moms know
peace only lasts as long as the
LaCroix, so they sip slowly

and intentionally ignore the
children fighting in the other
room. Visor on, haters out.
“I love the pink one,
because my mom loves it, and
we drink LaCroix together
when I am home,” said junior
Stephen Rich.

The Self-Delusional
Others use LaCroix to feel
fit, flirty and fun. The words
“no calories” and “natural
flavor” make their knees
weak and their hearts palpitate with anticipation at the
thought of drinking nothing.
These people choose Trader
Joe’s over Wal-Mart and
Pure Barre over humble gym
equipment.
They use LaCroix as a
placebo: the brain believes
it’s drinking soda, as the
taste buds cry out in anguish,
quickly silenced by the
almighty organ, which whispers, “Don’t fear, we like the
aftertaste of stale Tic Tacs.”
The self-delusional also
are “big fans” of zoodles, also
known as zucchini noodles.
“It’s healthier than soda,
but still fizzy,” said junior
McKenna Gramzay.

PHOTO COURTESY OF STEPHEN RICH
Junior Stephen Rich (center) and his mom, Biff, drink LaCroix
while dancing to the song “Soulja Boy” at his sister’s wedding.

The Level-Headed
LaCroix is polarizing — but
it’s possible to find LaCroix
drinkers who are level-headed.
They realize Coconut wasn’t
LaCroix’s best work, but they
genuinely like the other flavors.
They are rational, mellow
people. Ten out of 10 would
recommend having a conversation with them to understand
why people drink LaCroix,
because they will understand if
your opinions differ about the
disgusting drink.

“I enjoy drinking LaCroix
because it is fun ’n’ sparkly,”
said junior J.P. Zalaquett. “It
does not have the excessive
sweet taste that soda does, but
at the same time does not have
the bitter, gag-inducing plainness that seltzer water does.
The wide array of flavors available allow for constant new
LaCroix drinking experiences.”
“Lastly,” he said, “I’d be lying
if I didn’t say that I feel uber
sophisticated while drinking it.”

LETTERS TO
THE EDITOR

Chaucer
got me
looking
so crazy

T

NEXT

he Wife of Bath is not
a hugely popular topic
of conversation for
modern feminists. That could
be because her story was written by Geoffrey Chaucer in the
14th century.
“The Canterbury Tales” is
a (really) old book filled with
dense middle English prose,
which doesn’t especially appeal
to most modern readers.
Time period aside, Chaucer’s
portrayal of the Wife of Bath
is also, at surface level, deeply
unflattering. The Wife of Bath,
whose real name is Alison,
provides justifications for her
five marriages and manipulative seduction techniques that
are convoluted, painfully literal
and, generally, fairly stupid.
And yet, when viewed as
a conscious societal criticism
from Chaucer’s perspective,
Alison’s character assumes
satirical dimensions. Her
overly complicated and literal
quoting of the Bible is suddenly a plausible critique of
the male biblical interpreters
of Chaucer’s time.
Her use of sex as a way to
manipulate her various husbands is, at second glance, a
criticism of a society in which
women were only afforded
power within their personal
relationships, and then subsequently demonized for exploiting this narrow window of
opportunity.
This is all up for interpretation, of course. As it should be.
As it was in my English 120
recitation, where we’re reading
the Wife of Bath’s tale.
No, I don’t normally read
“The Canterbury Tales” for fun.
The discussion was eventually brought around to an overarching question: is Alison’s
character a complex societal
critique, or is she, as our teacher phrased it, “just crazy?”
This oversimplification —
this attempt to dispel notions
of complexity in a woman’s
character, to forego nuanced
analysis in favor of the allconsuming and damning label
of “crazy” — was not an isolated incident. It wouldn’t have
bothered me if it was.
Women being dismissed
as “crazy” is, of course, a historically significant issue. The
word “hysterical” comes from
the Latin word for “womb.”
None of this is new.
Read “The Yellow
Wallpaper”; listen to criticisms
of Taylor Swift’s apparently
“crazy” tendency to discuss
her exes; watch the “Hot Crazy
Matrix” on YouTube.
In my anecdotal experience,
the word “crazy” is applied as a
catch-all phrase for any range
of perceived personality flaws.
It’s an over-simplified dismissal that is disproportionately
used to describe women.
The Wife of Bath, or any
other woman perceived to be
outside of the “normal” realm
of female behavior, can be
handily relegated to the “crazy”
category, negating any possibility for real analysis.
In conclusion: please, for
the love of God, stop offhandedly calling women “crazy.”
Call them manipulative, or
mean, or shocking, or whatever actual adjective you think
applies to their character.
“Crazy” preemptively dismisses the validity of any
“crazy” person’s point of view.
On the other hand, what do
I know? As a woman myself, it’s
quite possible I’m crazy, too.

White bros, I hear you
Just what you need:
a safe space for
white men.
Editor’s note: This is an
advertisement from a fictional fraternity president
inspired by online comments. The Daily Tar Heel
does not claim any fraternity is like this:
et me set the scene.
The cops pull you
over and you’re
immediately terrified.
You know you haven’t
done anything wrong,
but the cops don’t care,
they will take you out
regardless of your innocence.
This is an everyday
encounter between white
bros, like me, and the
political correctness
police.
When we wildin’ out to
the new fire Young Thug
track, PC police. When we
watch Pulp Fiction and
quote all of Jules’ lines,
PC police. Every public
drunkenness ticket, real
police — but my dad
knows a guy, so it’s chill.
Anyways, this is the fear
that we white guys live
with day in and day out.
Our lived experience has
been pushed aside thanks
to all this #blacklivesmatter talk. What about

L

#mylifematters?
If you’re a white guy
and this is #thestruggle
for you too, rush Chi
Omega Chi Kappa Iota.
We proudly offer a safe
space for white guys to be
white guys without social
justice warrior babble,
Tumblr meme queens,
feminist consciousness
poisoning, race baiting and
snarky editorials (#liberalmediaconspiracy).
Everybody else has a
safe space, what about us
white guys who wanna
pound a Natty while
watching the next Donald
Trump speech?
Where’s the safe space
to Make America Great
Again?
Let me paint the scene.
I’m at Top of the Hill last
Friday, chatting up this
Iggy Azalea look-a-like in
a tight red dress.
I’m like three Buds in,
feelin’ a little sauced, but,
as all my dudes know, my
game has been at LeBron
James levels lately. I ask
her what her major is
and she says Women’s
Studies and starts talking about patriarchy and
Title IX.
I’m like, hold up, so this
isn’t happening is it?
And she’s like, I’d rather
stumble through Judith
Butler’s densest book

than go home with you.
I’m like, ‘what does that
mean?’, and then she left.
See what I’m saying
guys? We need a place
just for us. Where we can
spend time talking ‘bout
fine females instead of
Gerard Butler, or whoever
she was talking about.
To put it bluntly, our
culture is under attack.
When I made my
Facebook cover photo of
me and my boys chillin’
at the beach house with a
Confederate flag hanging
off the porch, I got called
“problematic” and “racist.”
I mean, Kanye got to
put Confederate flags all
over his Yeezus merch?
I worked hard at my
Goldman Sachs internship that my uncle scored
me over the summer,
yet everyone tells me
I’m privileged and don’t
deserve my BMW. Do
they even know it’s a
2006? That wasn’t even a
good year.
All this is to say, I can’t
be the dude that I know
I am in this political climate.
That’s why we need
Chi Omega Chi Kappa
Iota, a safe space to bro
out, listen to some Dave
Matthews and meet for all
those group projects the
B-school makes us do.

Jubilee deserves better
CUAB should
make Jubilee
great again.

L

ast year, it was
no secret how
this board felt
about the death of the
Homecoming concert
and the subsequent
choice of country singer
and UNC graduate Chase
Rice for the Jubilee concert.
To be fair, some students thought Rice was a
fine choice.
While we stand by
our words, we hope the
lessons learned from
last year can lead to better concerts for years to
come. The students of this
University deserve it.
Carolina Union
Activities Board, we want
to make it right this year.
Instead of waiting until
next semester to blast
whatever choice you make,
we thought it would be
best to go on record now
with our thoughts.
We appreciated seeing
a survey sent out asking
for students’ genre preferences, and hope it is taken
to heart.
It would be nice to
have the survey results

published, just to see how
many students wanted
each genre.
Once a genre is picked,
we trust you to pick the
artist.
We get that having a
shiny name attached to
the concert can look good
on posters, but it does not
always ensure the best
concert experience.
A potential safe bet
could mean securing
a big-name artist like
Aaron Carter, who came
to Cat’s Cradle last winter,
but an artist in his mold
would probably be the
worst choice for Jubilee.
Despite being wellknown, Carter’s most
successful ventures were
a decade ago, and they
weren’t that good to
begin with.
Furthermore, wouldn’t
it be nice to have one or
two lesser known artists
with a ton of potential
come and perform a set?
And if they go on to
make it big, then students
can say, “I saw them for
only a few bucks.”
There are certain places
where CUAB could look,
such as the NPR Tiny
Desk concerts, to find a
talented artist who is on
the rise.

While not all of these
artists are household
names, they are often
very talented, and with
the right promotion, they
could give a great concert
for the Carolina community to enjoy.
No matter who is
picked, the venue can
make a world of difference. Weather permitting
of course, outside is better than indoors — especially given that it is a
spring concert.
Ultimately, this concert will be one of the last
UNC events seniors have
before graduation.
And it is a great time
to de-stress before the
upcoming exam season.
A lot is riding on spring
Jubilee, and that is why
we are so concerned
about it.
We know picking the
artist is a difficult task,
and we appreciate CUAB
for taking it on.
Just please, give us
something to be proud
of.
We want a concert
that will make students
30 years from now say,
“How did they get them to
come?”
CUAB, let’s make it
happen.

TO THE EDITOR:
For those who are newer
to campus than others,
you may not remember the
“joys” of the run-off election. The time honored tradition where no candidate
for student body president
gets 50 percent plus 1 of the
vote, and the top two candidates have to campaign
for another week. The
campaign staffs are worn
by fatigue, students have
to endure another week of
shouting in the Pit and ultimately candidates spend
most of their time informing people that they do, in
fact, have to vote again.
Last year, Mr. Opere
was able to build enough
of a coalition to avoid the
run-off election, but this
was the exception to the
rule. Moving forward,
there is another way to give
students a fair, democratic
election. For the past three
years, RHA has conducted
its Governor elections using
preferential “Instant Run
Off ” voting.
In this system, voters
rank candidates in order
of their preference. The
system then eliminates the
last place candidate and
reassigns votes to each
voter’s second choice. This
process continues until one
candidate has a majority of
the votes.
I know the usual criticisms of this proposal: “But
we need that additional
week of campaigning to
reach voters.”
If that truly is the case,
why not just extend the
campaign period?
Also, Mr. Opere was
clearly able to spread his
message just fine without
having an additional week
of run-off campaigning.
Now that we have seen
that our student election
process does not hinge
upon the two-round system
of voting, perhaps it is time
to critically evaluate our
system once again.

Google Fiber is afraid
of the internet
TO THE EDITOR:
Your article didn’t
note that the Carrboro
hub siting process had
no public input, or that
Google wouldn’t talk to our
neighborhood. Not even
Carrboro is a “people over
profits” town. Here, enamored officials rushed the
siting of the hub through
the zoning process — visit
savecarrborogreenspaces.
org.
The shrewd design of
Google’s roll-out can’t be
explained briefly, but fast
deployment is crucial, so
G.F. pressures towns to
nominate town lots for
hubs.
Given the buzz, governments are pressured
to please Google Fiber;
two ornery towns were
rejected; a hub was put into

Raleigh’s North Hills Park;
Carrboro’s nominations
included Martin Luther
King Jr. Park. The Carrboro
cemetery tract was an
unspoiled greenspace in a
dense neighborhood. This
hub siting without public
discussion of the tract’s
future spins all of it toward
utilitarian uses. With planning, industrialized private
land could have been used.
Since converting parkland to noisy commercial
use is indefensible, Google
Fiber strives to leave no
digital fingerprints. After
helping officials plan to
counterbalance neighborhood opposition, no one
from Google spoke at the
June 21 Aldermen meeting on the Carrboro hub.
Google Fiber does not communicate via the press.
They may rely upon surrogates to respond to this
letter with distractions and
obfuscations, as on June 21.
Email press@gmail.

parks nominated by North
Carolina towns to host
hubs.
Your queries could preserve quiet parkland, especially in modest neighborhoods. If you get an answer,

Politicians should
hear scientists out
TO THE EDITOR:
As a lifelong North
Carolinian and UNC student who studies environmental policy, I was elated
when I learned that my university was receiving funding from the state legislature for an environmental
policy initiative. However,
I quickly grew disappointed when I learned that
this funding was merely
a mechanism for state
legislatures to interject
politics into environmental
research. Political leaders claim the initiative
will allow state lawmakers
to access the university’s
expertise for future policy
issues.
Of course, if this was the
genuine motivation, then
state legislatures could
seek advice from the longstanding Institute for the
Environment at UNC.
Furthermore, politicians
should heed the words of
scientific experts, but they
shouldn’t try to influence
science. Politically motivated science completely
compromises the integrity of that research, and
it jeopardizes the reputation of our state’s flagship
university. Biased research
could also prevent action
to protect North Carolina’s
environment.
If state legislatures
want to fund programs
in exchange for access
to UNC faculty expertise, that’s fine, but they
shouldn’t use state funding to create an initiative
for their own political
ends. In other words, keep
your politics out of my science.

show. They took the stage a
little more than a year after
celebrating an important
milestone.
In August 2015, the band
released their solo album to
a sold-out crowd at Local
506.
Dyson, the lead vocalist and banjo player, said a
lot has changed since they
started out three years ago
as a two-piece band playing
on the corner of Franklin
Street.
“It’s just good to look back
and see how much we’ve progressed,” he said.
Dyson said he got the idea
for the variety show from
Bland Simpson, a UNC english professor and member
of the band The Red Clay
Ramblers.
“We sit down for coffee
every few months or so,
and he fills my head with
all these crazy ideas,” Dyson
said. “I just said I wanted to
try the theater, and he said,
‘Why not?’ So we had a date
booked at the Cat’s Cradle,
and the whole thing really
just came together so natu-

Lowenhagen works extremely
hard to make sure everything
runs smoothly so that the festival goes off without a hitch.
“It all comes in waves,” he
said in 2015. “Some nights I
might work five to six hours.”
Last year, he said he
worked 80 hours in the week
leading up to Hopscotch.
The origin of Hopscotch has
roots in another publication —
the Independent Weekly.
Lowenhagen sent an
email in June 2009 to Steve
Schewel, the owner and cofounder of the Indy Week. The
email detailed Lowenhagen’s
plan to create a music festival

in Raleigh and led to an invitation to lunch from Schewel,
who eventually agreed to the
festival.
Six years later, Hopscotch
has been called “one of the
best and most eclectic music
festivals in America” by Spin
magazine.
Lowenhagen explained
that besides liking the word
“hopscotch,” the festival’s
name is based off the premise
of Julio Cortazar’s chooseyour-own-adventure book
with the same name.
“The prologue says, ‘There
are many books contained
within this book.’ The idea is

that Hopscotch, the festival, is
a lot like the novel,” he said.

ate Alex Maiolo — said once
you’re in the fictional business, it’s hard to get back out.
“You can say that your band
is broken up, but you’ve never
left a boy band. I mean, it’s the
closest thing to being in the
mafia that I can think of,” said
Maiolo, in character as Ray.
McKinney has been in the
business of protesting HB2
since its beginnings, with the
fake boy band campaign for
Equality NC being their latest
effort.

For the record, the (fake)
band went by One More Wish
in the (fictional) 90s, but
are rebranding as 1MW to
counteract HB2 with more
modern fans.
While the satirical band is
fake, the activism behind the
group is real.
“McKinney has had a longstanding effort since the bill
was put in place to fight the
bill. We did the big letter with
the CEOs from Silicon Valley
and created toilet paper with

the bill on it, and we’ve had
a couple other efforts,” said
Janet Northen, the director of
agency communications for
McKinney. “This is the most
recent, and I think probably
the most spectacular.”
UNC graduate Habib
Yazdi of XY Content, a media
production company, was
approached by McKinney to
direct the mockumentary and
helped ground the concept in
North Carolina’s music scene.
“When they approached us,

rally.”
Dyson’s character, Mr.
Medicimo, was inspired by
a song on the band’s first
record.
“Mr. Medicimo is the most
conceptually intense song
that we have, and that’s on
our first record,” said Dyson.
“There’s all sorts of other zany
characters.”
Other characters in the
show include “Al Kaseltzer”
and “Mr. Trombone Man” —
and UNC students, performing as themselves.
Molly Miller, a sophomore
exercise and sport science
and psychology double
major, was one of the backup dancers in the show.
“During the practices we
did with the band, they were
really relaxed and energetic.
It was a great environment
to be in,” Miller said. “We
had lots of fun on stage —
I’m sure you could see it in
our faces.”
For the newcomers, the
show was a departure from
what might be expected
from a young local group —
but for fans who have stuck
with the band since their
debut album a year ago,
the show stayed true to the

“It’s just so good to
look back and see
how much we’ve
progressed.”

band’s roots.
Junior Rickie Eatherly
is a long time fan of The
Shambles’ jazzy music and
interactive shows.
“They do a lot of call and
response, and a lot of dancing,” she said. “You can tell
that they love what they do.”
And they love their fans
who allow them to continue
to do it.
Dyson said that although
the band has played shows
up and down the East Coast,
North Carolina is his favorite
place to play.
“When you play hometown shows, the band and
the audience curate the
show, and they are both
equally important,” Dyson
said.
“That synchronicity is
amazing.”

Well$ tries to inspire
with upstart career
Raised by Congolese immigrants fleeing political conflict,
Leroy Shingu — known by his
stage name Well$ — was never
short on motivation to succeed.
His career is based on his
family. Knowing they’re in
the Democratic Republic of
Congo and can’t leave unless
someone helps them get out
has kept him driven.
“It’s definitely given me

5

the drive to be greater,” Well$
said. “It drives me to be the
best artist I can be.”
Based in Charlotte, Well$
visited UNC when he opened
for Rae Sremmurd for the
Carolina Union Activities
Board Jubilee in April 2015,
but he’s been around Chapel
Hill for years — his cousin is
Alec Lomami, producer and
co-founder of the Chapel Hill
record label Immaculate Taste.
Since he opened for Rae
Sremmurd at UNC, Well$ has
released new music, including
a single, “Heaven’s Door,” produced by Metro Boomin.
But his ambition doesn’t

undermine his passion.
“I’m just another 20-yearold kid, just like most of the
students that are in the crowd
that got the notion to chase
their dream,” Well$ said.
“I just hope that after seeing me perform, not necessarily even listening to my
words, but just being inspired
in the sense of — don’t listen
to what everyone else has to
tell you or what everyone else
wants you to do. If you have
a dream, and you have the
means to chase that dream,
chase that dream.”

we were able to have a really
open conversation about
how to go forward with this
concept, and having been
to school in North Carolina
and graduating from UNC
and being a big part of the
music scene when I was there
... I knew a lot of musicians
and I was really into the
idea of having it grounded
in North Carolina and having the band’s roots in North
Carolina,” Yazdi said.
Despite their elaborate

backstory, 1MW said they are
more focused on where they’re
going. With “old” tracks like
“JNKA Jeans,” revamped for
2016 and available to purchase as ringtones in real life,
Maiolo-as-Ray said he sees a
bright future ahead.
And his goals are simple.
“I mean, just to make a metric shitload of money,” he said.
“Isn’t that the goal in life,
period?”

How do students remember 9/11 today?

Compiled by senior writers Jamie Gwaltney and
Sofia Edelman.

Most current undergraduates were children when the terrorist attacks in New York City, Washington D.C. and rural Pennsylvania occurred on
Sept. 11, 2001. Students shared what they remember about the day, the period of time after and how it impacts their lives now.

Secretary of State John
F. Kerry acknowledged the
make-or-break nature of the
violence in Syria and efforts
to decrease it, and the inherent difficulties of success.
Kerry pointed to two
key provisions in the agreement that he says can make
a difference over past, failed
cease-fires. First, the Assad
government will be required
to suspend aerial attacks by its
helicopters and warplanes on
civilian areas. Russia must use
its influence to guarantee that,
and Lavrov said the Syrian
government was on board.
Second, the U.S. agreed
to pressure “moderate” rebel
groups opposed to the Syrian
government to fully distance
themselves from the Front
for the Conquest of Syria,
formerly known as Al Nusra
Front, which the U.S. considers al-Qaida’s branch in Syria.

NEW YORK (MCT) —
With solemn ceremonies and

the nation Sunday marked
the 15th anniversary of the
Sept. 11 terrorist attacks that

Annual Hajj pilgrimage
reaches peak
MECCA, SAUDI ARABIA
(MCT) — Nearly 2 million
Muslims Sunday headed to
Mount Arafat near the city
of Mecca in Saudi Arabia to
mark the peak of the annual
hajj pilgrimage.
Saudi authorities tightened
security across the holy sites
for the five-day hajj that started on Saturday to prevent the
recurrence of a stampede that
caused hundreds of deaths
last year.
White-robed pilgrims set
off for Mount Arafat at sunrise
from the valley of Mina, about
4 miles northeast of Mecca.

Last year, 769 pilgrims
died in a stampede during the stone-throwing hajj
ritual, according to the Saudi
government. Independent
reports, however, put the
death toll around 2,000.
Sunday’s hajj participants
included 1.3 million Muslims
from 164 countries. The rest
were domestic pilgrims.
Muslims are expected
to perform the hajj, one of
Islam’s five pillars, at least
once in their lifetimes if they
are fit enough and have the
financial means to do so.

Anti-gay protest draws
thousands to Tijuana
TIJUANA, MEXICO
(MCT) — Thousands of
opponents of same-sex marriage, including Tijuana’s new
Roman Catholic archbishop,
gathered for a rally in the city
to protest Mexican President

Enrique Pena Nieto’s proposed constitutional reform
favoring the right of couples
to marry regardless of gender
identity or sexual orientation.
The Saturday march to
City Hall was one of dozens of
such protests across Mexico,
drawing a combined hundreds of thousands of people.
The demonstrations came
after a series of legal victories scored by proponents of
same-sex marriage in states
across Mexico.
Same-sex marriage is legal
in Mexico City and nine of
the country’s 31 states. The
Mexican Supreme Court last
year ruled that state bans on
same-sex marriage are unconstitutional, but that decision
doesn’t automatically invalidate each state’s prohibition.
During pending legal challenges to the remaining 22
bans, same-sex couples can
marry by getting an injunc-

NCSU senior makes N.Y. debut

Feds renew WCU project grant

Nonprofit funds FSU program

N.C. State senior Lisa
Hoang made her New
York Fashion Week
debut this past Friday.
Her collection, “The
Debutante,” was presented on the main
stage alongside the likes of Christian Siriano,
Jenny Packham, Marchesa and Vera Wang.
The collection is described as women’s
ready-to-wear that features transitional
day-to-night pieces. Hoang used romantic
detailing to achieve the design and aesthetic
she wanted in the collection.
Hoang discovered her acceptance into the
New York Fashion Show in early August and
has since been commuting between Raleigh
and Manhattan to oversee her collection.
She had to move quickly to finish her collection, plan the venue, cast models and finetune her media presence.
This past spring, Hoang was one of 16
emerging designers featured at Charleston
Fashion Week. Her experience in Charleston
is what encouraged her to apply for New
York Fashion Week.
Hoang is a fashion and textile design student at N.C. State’s College of Textiles. She
is currently enrolled full-time and hopes to
graduate this spring. Hoang is also assistant
designer at Cheryl King Couture, a Wendell,
N.C. company.

The U.S. Department
of Education has
renewed its grant
funding for Western
Carolina University’s
talent search program,
Project Discovery,
allowing the program to continue for the
next five years.
Project Discovery identifies and provides
assistance to people from disadvantaged
backgrounds who possess the potential to
succeed in higher education.
The program aims to help students go
to college and build awareness for the
opportunities that exist in higher education. Students receive training in financial
literacy and planning, standardized test
preparation and guidance through the college admissions process.
With the grant renewal, the program
will receive $368,160 in funding per year
for five years. The funding will help the
program offer academic, career and financial counseling.
The program currently works with 767
students from six high schools and six
middle schools in western North Carolina.
Students typically enter the program in
sixth or seventh grade, with about 80 percent of students going on to pursue some
type of post-secondary education.

Transition, Access and
Retention program this
fall.
Bronco STAR provides
students who have alternate learning styles
with academic support. It aims to help students who have previously faced challenges in
the education system due to their learning differences but possess the capacity to succeed.
Bronco STAR provides dedicated study
spaces, success coaches, psychosocial services, personalized academic success plans
and tutoring services.
In the 2014-15 academic year, Bronco STAR
provided tutoring services to 45 students and
tutored more through embedded services in
nine courses. This year, the embedded tutor
program intends to expand to 12 courses.
Participants are identified from two primary populations: traditional college students who are in their late teens and recent
high school graduates as well as transfer students who often are older, more experienced
and have significant life experience.
The program was funded by a threeyear $1 million grant from the N.C.
GlaxoSmithKline Foundation, an independent nonprofit foundation dedicated to
issues in education.

N.C. A&T wins agriculture grant
N.C. A&T State
University has
received a $1.2 million grant from the
U.S. Department of
Agriculture’s National
Institute of Food and

Agriculture.
The grant was awarded to N.C. A&T’s
College of Agriculture and Environmental
Sciences, which administers the University
Farm project.
The University Farm project helps build
and improve agricultural and food science
research facilities and equipment at historically black land-grant colleges and universities.
The grant will enable N.C. A&T’s College
of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences
to begin a new cycle of programs to improve
teaching, research and outreach through
the community and an upcoming development in the University Farm.
Plans to create a community and urban
food complex for the University Farm were
announced earlier this year. These plans are
estimated to cost $5 million.
The complex is tentatively set to open in
2019 and will feature a student-run farm, a
community-run farm, a business incubator
focused on agricultural enterprises and a
research laboratory.

After meeting, Board of Governors take public comments
The board responds
to concerns online,
not at the meeting.
By Danielle Chemtob
Senior Writer

After its Friday meeting,
the UNC Board of Governors
hosted its third public comment session — a practice
implemented in May following months of protests, and
the first since the school year
began.
The protests had been
aimed at the appointment
of Margaret Spellings as
the president of the UNC
system, a process that was
marred by a lack of transparency.
During the press conference Friday, Spellings was
asked to grade her first six

months in office and she said
she’s still learning the ropes.
“I think I would get an
incomplete,” she said.
Spellings and members
of the board discussed a
range of topics, including
performance-based funding
for system schools and the
development of the system’s
strategic plan.
Two members of the public voiced their opinions at
the session: Connor Harney,
an Appalachian State
University graduate, and
Mitch Xia, a UNC-Chapel
Hill junior.
Harney said at the session he had applied for a
teaching position, but one
UNC-system school offered
him what amounted to $160
per week.
“I’ve been given the choice
to either teach or feed my
family,” Harney said. “My

son isn’t going to be able to
eat professional development.”
Xia asked the board to
explain their rationale behind
cutting or shrinking programs
at certain schools, such as
Africana Studies and Women
and Gender Studies.
“It seems unlikely to me
that it was truly just a matter of funding, given that the
BOG has also given significant raises to administrators
and also added many admin
positions at our schools while
failing to do the same for faculty positions and academic
departments,” Xia said at the
session.
Board of Governors member Marty Kotis said the
sessions have been a more
useful way to hear the public’s
concerns.
“It’s perhaps more effective
than a sign being held up,” he

Tech Fair

“I’ve been given the choice to either teach or
feed my family.”
Connor Harney
Appalachian State University graduate

said. “When people yell you
lose the ability to communicate.”
Xia said the implementation of the public forum
shows that protests have had
concrete effects.
“I think the very fact that
the protests led to the implementation of this forum, the
very fact that there’s a direct
correlation shows that both
are very necessary in terms
of demanding and getting
change from the Board of
Governors,” Xia said.
In response to the concerns
brought up during the public
comment sessions, the board
posts responses on its web-

site. But Xia said they would
have liked to see more of a
direct conversation.
“I feel like the public comment session, it felt like an
attempt to placate people
who accused the Board of
Governors of being nontransparent,” Xia said. “There
was no further information,
no actual dialogue.”
Spellings told reporters in
a news conference she has
been working for greater
accessibility as well as affordability.
“I think the first thing
that I have been trying to do
along with the entirety of the
general administration staff

is to listen to people who
are on the ground,” she said.
“The other big thing is getting the Board of Governors
and working with them
aligned around these very big
themes.”
Spellings is pushing these
themes as the board works
on its Strategic Plan, which
board committees will be
working on heavily before
the board’s next meeting in
October.
In her address to the board
at the beginning of the meeting, Spellings said the plan
will need to involve input
from chancellors, students,
faculty and other stakeholders.
“This will not be a topdown plan, it can’t be if it’s
going to be effective,” she told
the board.

Trubisky arrives in win over Illinois
The redshirt junior scored
four touchdowns Saturday
FOOTBALL

NORTH CAROLINA
48
ILLINOIS23
By Brendan Marks
Senior Writer

CHAMPAIGN, ILLINOIS — This
moment demands description.
You could do it with numbers,
of course. They will say this: North
Carolina quarterback Mitch Trubisky
played well Saturday night. They
will note his four touchdowns — two
passing, two rushing — and they will
mention his yards. They will show, in
a way, how essential he was to UNC’s
48-23 win over Illinois.
But numbers are merely that, and
this moment deserves more than
their simplicity offers.
Words, then, must do the job.
Right?
“He was ready to come out here
and ball,” senior T.J. Logan said.
“Just Mitch making plays.”
Keep going.
“He started to get in a groove,”
junior Elijah Hood said. “That’s kind
of what I expected to see.”
The picture’s taking shape now, of a
confident aura and the man it drapes
over. It does not envelop him — he
wears it.
“He has more. He definitely has
more,” redshirt junior Nazair Jones
said. “He still hasn’t put a game
together yet. And that’s what the crazy

thing is, because he hasn’t played bad.
“But we definitely expect a lot
more from Mitch.”
There’s still something missing.
Something more to be said or done.
If not with numbers or words, how
do you describe this man and this
moment and what it all means?
By action. Choices. Not by what he
said he would do, or what others said
he would do, but by what he actually
did.
Take the first quarter Saturday
night, the very first play the Tar
Heels ran — a sack, Trubisky on
the ground and flashbacks to the
season-opening loss to Georgia.
He was crumpled on the ground,
but he did not crumble.
Instead, he responded. The next
possession, he stood in that same
collapsing pocket and unleashed a
dart across the middle to a streaking
Ryan Switzer.
The number says 21 yards. The
words say a key completion. The
action says it all.
The next play, Trubisky crept past
the defensive line and scampered
down the left sideline, almost for a
touchdown. He did not slide on the
play. He got hit — as football players,
but not typically quarterbacks, do.
The number says 39 yards. The
words say a big run. The action says
it all.
“I didn’t want him to really take
the hit at the end like he did, you
know,” Head Coach Larry Fedora
said. “But he came off the field and I

said, ‘Don’t do that.’
“He said, ‘I needed it.’”
Two plays later, he plunged headfirst into a swarm of bodies and
came out in the endzone.
There are so many more details,
minute ones, that capture this all.
The screams from teammates in the
tunnel after the game — “QB1” — or
that each offensive player interrupted Trubisky’s interviews to dap him
up. They could have waited. They

chose not to, and that says more
than they can hope to.
So, then, how do you describe this
moment?
Perhaps like this: A quarterback,
relegated to the bench for three
years, finally taking his job and
thriving. Playing poorly, accepting
criticism and then inviting more
now that he has found success.
Hearing lofty expectations for himself and this team — his team — and

raising them himself.
Then, surpassing both altogether.
Maybe this moment is a fluke, one
that in time will be looked back on
as equally temporary and taunting.
But it does not feel as such.
It feels like an arrival. It feels like
a beginning.
And that description will have to
do.

Emma Bozek scores her UNC women’s golf looks to
defy expectations yet again
first goal since 2014
The Tar Heels went to the
NCAA Championships last
season and finished 14th.

Emma Bozek remembered
it clearly. Before Saturday, her
last collegiate goal came nearly
two years ago, when the North
Carolina field hockey team lost
to Syracuse in the 2014 national
semifinal game.
That goal was one of 16 Bozek
scored that season, which placed
her first on the roster in scoring.
She was poised to feed off that
campaign in 2015 — but a sequestered lung delayed her vision.
With such a severe medical
diagnosis, it was natural to question if Bozek would ever return
to the field. But for the fifth-year
senior, a UNC homecoming was
just a matter of time.
“The seriousness of what she went
through was extreme, but if anybody
could get back, I knew it would be
her,” Coach Karen Shelton said.
Bozek’s recovery forced her to
help the team from the sidelines
in what would have been her
senior year, but it gave her time to
develop a renewed approach to the
game she had loved for so long.
“It’s a long recovery process,
and day in and day out you have to
do a lot of things that don’t seem
like they matter in the moment,”
Bozek said. “But over time, all of
the rehab really makes a huge difference. It’s been a long road, but
well worth it.”
The road — traveled diligently
for over a year — reached a new
plateau Saturday as Bozek stepped

The North Carolina women’s golf
team will begin the 2016-17 season this
week at the Mercedes-Benz Collegiate
in Knoxville, Tennessee. Here’s what to
expect from the Tar Heels this year.

How do they play?

up for a penalty stroke in No. 3
UNC’s home opener against No. 9
Wake Forest (3-2, 0-1 ACC).
“I was a little bit nervous, to be
honest,” Bozek said. “But (I was)
happy I put it in.”
Bozek’s goal was a turning point
in Saturday’s game, pushing the
Tar Heel lead to 3-1 early in the
second half. Her leadership on the
field was a huge momentum boost
for UNC (5-1, 1-0 ACC).
Emily Wold, one of Bozek’s closest friends, joined the team as an
undergraduate assistant coach after
her senior season. Wold views this
first goal as the beginning of a huge
final campaign for Bozek.
“I was so excited for her — a
relief for her to know she’s still the
same player, even after all she’s
been through,” Wold said. “I would
have loved to have played my
senior year with her, but still being
around it’s great to see how much
of a leader she is.”
Leading both on and off the field

has always been a trait of Bozek’s.
But that year on the sidelines gave
her a chance to really show how
important she is for UNC .
“Nobody works harder,” Shelton
said. “She’s been a tremendous
leader for us. It’s been a long time
for her coming. I’m proud of her
— what she’s been through, the
player she is.”
UNC claimed a 4-1 victory over
Wake Forest and a 6-0 win Sunday
over VCU (1-3) — thanks in large
part to Bozek’s contribution on
both sides of the ball. She even left
her position up front to play some
center defense against the Rams.
Bozek has come a long way during her journey. But through the
hard times, she always knew where
she would be standing this fall.
“I knew as soon as I went in the
hospital — I knew I was coming
back and playing,” she said.
“It was just a matter of when.”

For North Carolina, last season was
all about exceeding expectations.
After being seeded 12th in the
NCAA Stanford Regional, the Tar
Heels outplayed their ranking to finish fourth and qualify for the NCAA
Championships for the first time since
2012. And as the No. 23 seed in the
NCAA Championships, UNC defied
expectations and finished 14th.
This season, North Carolina returns
four of five starters, who all competed
in the NCAA Championships.

Who stands out?
Leslie Cloots: The senior from
Antwerp, Belgium, is the team’s undisputed leader, pacing the team in stroke
average for two straight seasons.
She also accomplished something
no other golfer in UNC history had
ever done, shooting three rounds of
four-under par in 2015-16.
Lexi Harkins: Harkins’ play has
steadily improved every year she has
been at Chapel Hill. After a middling
first-year campaign, the junior upped
her game in 2015-16 and finished third
on the team in stroke average.
Her best moment came in the third
round of the NCAA Championship,
when she shot a 68— tied for the best

round ever by a UNC golfer in the event.
Kelly Whaley: Last season, the
sophomore finished second on the
team in stroke average — the lowest
for a first-year since former All-ACC
golfer Elizabeth Mallett in 2012-13.
Her potential was never more evident than when she tied for 10th at the
ACC Championships. If Whaley can
build on this performance, she could
become a breakout player for UNC.

When is their biggest event?
At the ACC Championship in
Greensboro (April 21-23), the Tar
Heels will match up against a number
of perennial powerhouses. If UNC
plays well enough to qualify, the NCAA
Regional (May 8-10) will give the team
an opportunity to earn its place in the
NCAA Championships (May 19-24).

What is their biggest weakness?
After losing Mallett, the Tar Heels
must now identify a new fifth starter.
The competition should be a tough
one, as Coach Jan Mann has six players to choose from.
The decision will be crucial in
determining the depth of this team.
And depth will be a huge factor in
determining the team’s overall success.
At times during the 2015-16 season,
the fourth and fifth golfers struggled to
keep pace with the other starters, making it difficult for UNC to contend.
North Carolina will need more consistency across the board if it wants to
repeat last year’s unexpected success.

Why could they win it all?
This is a team full of both confidence and experience. If the Tar Heels
play like they did last season, they can
compete with any team in the nation.

Volleyball splits ACC-Big Ten Challenge against top-five foes
VOLLEYBALL

MINNESOTA3
NORTH CAROLINA 1
By Sam Doughton
Staff Writer

Two nights, two packed
gyms, two very different endings.
On night one: ballistic
screams and cheers not
yet heard this season in
Carmichael Arena for the No.
11 North Carolina volleyball
team. On night two: groans

and murmurs as the home
team struggled to connect in
a disappointing loss.
Coming off a potentially
season-defining 3-2 win
over No. 2 Wisconsin (6-1)
on Friday night, UNC (6-1)
returned to earth Saturday
— getting demolished in the
opening two sets en route
to a 3-1 loss against No. 5
Minnesota (5-1) in the Tar
Heels’ first loss of the season.
“It was time for us to
learn,” Coach Joe Sagula said.
“And this got our attention.”
UNC matched Wisconsin
blow for blow in front of a

rowdy crowd Friday, winning
the final two sets behind the
strong play of redshirt junior
Taylor Fricano — who tallied 15 kills and seven blocks.
She transferred to UNC from
Wisconsin in 2015.
“It’s beautiful to beat someone who didn’t think you
could do it,” Fricano said.
The whole team played
well against a very strong
Wisconsin side. Cheered on
by a crowd of nearly 4,000
fans, the Tar Heels stayed
focused through long rallies
and beared down through
tight sets to pull out the win.

On Saturday, however, the
Tar Heels came out flat —
dropping the first two sets by
14 and 13 points, respectively.
UNC combined for 15 attack
errors in those two sets, compared to three attack errors
by the Golden Gophers.
“We were down so much so
early, we were just climbing
up hill,” Sagula said. “And we
just couldn’t get out of it.”
Co-captain Abigail Curry
said UNC was not mentally
ready to deal with the Golden
Gophers’ fast-paced attack.
“Our failure in the first two
sets was not technical,” Curry,

a senior, said. “It was a mental breakdown on our side.”
The second two sets went
better for the Tar Heels, who
won the third set before losing a close fourth set. Firstyear Taylor Borup was constantly relied upon down the
stretch, as she hit a careerhigh 17 kills with four blocks.
The early deficit was too
much to overcome, though.
While UNC upped its game
in the fourth set, Minnesota
maintained its high level of
play to close out the match.
Despite the poor play at the
start of the match, Sagula said

he thought the loss would end
up as a good thing. Besides,
he’d rather have it happen
now than in ACC play.
“This match will help us,”
Sagula said. “Probably even
more than the Wisconsin win.”
His co-captain agreed.
“Being undefeated and not
experiencing failure throughout your season is probably
one of the worst things that
could happen …” Curry said.
“This is going to be a good
thing — to realize that we
have a lot of work to do.”
